Dead fucking dead fucking dead fucking dead/dead fucking dead dead fucking dead dead fucking dead fucking dead dead fucking dead
dead fucking dead dead dead fucking dead - they shot her in the face they shot her in the arm dead fucking dead dead fucking dead - they shot her husband to death in front of her she had to watch that, the next-to-last thing she saw in this world dead fucking dead fucking dead then they turned their fully automatic assault rifles on her and shot her to death dead fucking dead dead fucking dead fuckin dead fucking dead - she & her husband were unarmed - I've been told I need time to "process" this "information" PROCESS ? I'm told I need closure. CLOSURE? CLOSURE? Dead weaponized terrorist words from dead weaponized terrorist languages - dead fucking dead - dead fucking dead - dead fucking dead - dead dead dead rip my heart from my chest you think I got anything to hand BIG ENOUGH to fill that hole ? Ever ? dead fucking dead.

She was my friend.

I'm dead with you, judih, I'm dead with you.
Doll, you may have found a place of rest but I'm still on the trail.

she was kind to me

didn't seem put off by my oddness - or just accepted it - just didn't care

we did a few long-distance collaborative readings

I liked her voice - calm, gentle, unrushed

she called mine "masculine"

(ha - thin, reedy, strained - "masculine")

all part of her niceness

the world isn't ready for niceness...

Powerful poems you linked to, Sasha! Thank you!

Mingo— exactly! 😢 ((hugs)) I’m angry and paralyzed. I regret not having met her NYC. I don’t know what to do. You said it better.

Here’s a link to an article about Judih which includes quite a few of her haiku. I think it’s very special that they included those and highlighted her work as a poet.

A little Judih anecdote. The first time she came to visit we talked about her earlier life here in Toronto, as well as her life on the kibbutz. My wife asked: What do you do for entertainment? Judith replied fart.

Here’s a photo of Judih that Artguy (Kurt) sent me. It was taken when Judih visited him during one of his art exhibits in Toronto.
